The coarse part of the commercial cloud customers use the services of several providers under which amazon is leading. That goes out of the first "state of cloud strategy survey" emerged, the results of the software provider hashicorp presented on wednesday. More than 3000 people involved in the survey worldwide. The questions range from the adaptation of the multi-cloud on the used cloud providers to data protection concerns.
Multi-cloud on the upswing
According to the survey, 76 percent multi-cloud users are 24 percent single-cloud users – the basic cloud use was therefore apparent prerequisite for participation. Coarse companies with over 5000 employees are clearly over the average with 90% multi-cloud use. For example, a survey participant cited by hashicorp said that certain cloud providers allowed experimenting with emerging technologies, while the company uses a different provider for the main burden.
As a common reason for the multi-cloud use, the respondents called the digital transformation (34%), behind it with 30% ranked the avoidance of vendor lock-in. Other answers pay, among other things, cost reduction, scaling or portability of data. On the other hand, a small role in multi-cloud adaptation plays the coronavirus pandemic: only 7 percent called them as a factor.
